September 28: I walked out, Jay. Republicans are rushing Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation with a sham hearing this morning, less than 24 hours after Dr. Ford had the courage to tell her story in front of the entire country. This is a disgrace. So, instead of sitting through this farce... I walked out. (Fundraising email)

September 20: Senate Republicans are attempting to make Dr. Blasey Ford testify on just a few days’ notice—without having the FBI follow up on her allegations and provide a report first. This strikes us as simply a check-the-box exercise in a rush to confirm Judge Kavanaugh. It is for this reason that we urge you to reconsider your decision and ask the FBI to take appropriate action in response to the claims that have been made, so that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination can be considered by the Senate in a manner that is both consistent with past practices and fair to the parties involved and the American people.

September 9: But time is quickly running out to stop Donald Trump’s dangerous nominee. We can't stop Kavanaugh without a massive outcry. We need an outcry at least as huge as the uproar that stopped Trumpcare last year. (MoveOn fundraising email)

September 6: So, what we have here is a rushed confirmation process, hundreds of thousands of withheld or missing documents, and a nominee handpicked by right-wing special interest groups who won’t even answer our questions. (Fundraising email)

September 4: This vacancy on the Supreme Court is one of the most consequential fights of the last several years, and I want you to know I am prepared to do everything in my power to stop this nomination. (Fundraising email)

August 24: Given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing by the President, doubts that Judge Kavanaugh believes a president can even be investigated, and the unprecedented lack of transparency regarding this nominee's record, we should not move forward with hearings on September 4th. Instead, we should have a special meeting of the Committee to discuss a bipartisan, fair, and transparent process for moving forward. (Twitter)

August 14: Sign my urgent petition demanding the U.S. Senate reject Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. He is a fundamental threat to our justice and equality as Americans — and this rushed confirmation process is alarming and unfair to the public. (Fundraising email)

July 10: The concern I have about his appointment and him being on the United States Supreme Court is that we already know that there are probably 20 states that are prepared and have been in the process of restricting a woman's right to make that decision in terms of giving her meaningful access to not only reproductive health care, but also to an abortion. And my concern is that those cases will then be appealed up to the United States Supreme Court, and he, being the swing vote on that court, will consistently uphold these restrictions on a woman's meaningful access to reproductive care, and, in effect, then, can overturn Roe v. Wade without explicitly overturning Roe v. Wade, in that affirming these state laws, these restrictions on a woman's access to reproductive health care, they will essentially eliminate a woman's ability to have an abortion if she makes the decision that that is necessary. (PBS News Hour)

July 9: Brett Kavanaugh represents a fundamental threat to the promise of justice and equality, which is why I am announcing that I will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court. (Email to supporters)
